My sister's dog died so I got her an identical one

Well, you see... I mean...
Never mind, she's a teen
Don't know what it means either and I own a...Read More

Meant to share with the world

that held few hints of his tragic future.
The first major trouble for him began
during his teen years when he fell in love.

Making Waves
Making Waves
Sexy dancer to the waves.
See how she moves to the music.
Base turned up full boom boomboom!

Even when she’d driving, she dances.
Her stereo on full while she nods her head.
She’s the stereo loving gal and don’t we know it?

Her job...Read More

Premium Member Summer School
It was a smile, simply,
that would absolve me of my virtue ...
a whiter-than-white allure of the unexplored.

Barely a teen, I was mesmerized by her sublime sway -
distant, yet she followed the puerile anguish of my eyes,
back-and-forth, then ever-so-slowly UP her...Read More

She Smiled
In the morning of the night
Teen acting beyond limit
She wasn't fit but fast
I wasn't surprise but afraid

She was not in Rome, but walks like Romans
Her claim is far beyond her reach

Ori olodi oja atana

Waiting for Nobel
Waiting for Nobel 

With the brain, body and behaviour
Of a young boy, 
I was standing in a hollow hall,
Continuously staring  the art
Of a young artist in free verse,
On the front wall.

Finding the same category
Between us,
I said, “Hi”
And suddenly

Until you discover
That your discoveries
Has not been discovered

And then discover,
That, what discoveries
Are left to be discovered.

Keep on discovering.

Lift off of life
Lift off of life

It rises, up and up,
Leaving alone the hands.
It is still moving up
leaving his habitat
To follow a new thought.

But at a limit, it stops;
As if confused in choosing path,
And in the life of him enters the wind,
Pushing it...Read More

I think of you sometimes
And it hurts.

And it hurts even more.

The Eye of The Beholder
Everyone tells her she's beautiful,
Smart, kind and funny
She hears these words all the time
Like a silent killer with no soul
No value, no power, only empty words
That society has carved and recreated
For their own purpose
The creator of her reasons,
why she can't...Read More

Be the light
Be the light;
Be quick,
Be straight.

Be the light,
Show the right way.
Be the light,
And help until the sunrise.

To generate the spark.
Use badness as fuel
And scare away the dark.

Use the light
To highlight the goodness,
Be a lighter
And burn the badness.

Be the light,
Be colourful from...Read More

Comfortably calm within their abode…

It is that time of season

...And who really wants to deal with
a surly teen, that was no fun.
Hard enough to stand human kids,
much less an artificial one.

He Was The Music Man
He Was The Music Man

Mr Pankridge
was a totem pole,
red-haired, blue-mouthed militant,
Six-foot, tip-toeing, tangle-footed trip hazard.
“The Music Wizard”
or “Hanky Panky” if he’s grumpy.
He could spit Mussorgsky
across a classroom like a cherry stone.

The life of teens
Ripped jeans, touch screens

The whole life of teens

Revolves around the fashion about

Starts and even end with these

These teens, these tweens

The junk food extreme

or some on diet meals

and some hate the green

It looks so wonderful

The amazingly perfect

But it’s not that easy

A crescent river bend
A crescent river bend
Exiting from bathroom
Perhaps to set a trend
As nude as a fresh bloom
Down the dancing stairs

Did she leave her gown
In a room downstairs
She is looking like a chair
Bending her head down
Palms close to wet hair

Sensuous sunbeam
Can't keep contained...Read More
